Our Organization

Our Mission

The Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Greater Cincinnati is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create public awareness to the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, to provide support, resources, and education to ovarian cancer survivors and caregivers; and to fund research focused on early detection, survivability, and a cure.


Who We Are

We are a group of volunteers, many of us survivors, who are committed to making a difference for women in the Greater Cincinnati Tri-State area.


Our Partnership with The Cancer Support Community

Cancer Support Community of Greater Cincinnati and Northern KentuckyWe have entered into a partnership with The Cancer Support Community of Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky. We share a common interest in providing support to women affected by ovarian cancer. We are part of The Cancer Support Community but maintain a separate account for revenue and expenses. This partnership will allow our donations to have a 501c3 status and give us the ability to direct funds locally. We will provide funding to the Gynecological Cancer Networking Group as well as other cancer programs in this area.
